Awesome looking. I have loved this thing for ages. Makes me wish I didn't sell my CJ6.
What is the original purpose of the trailer with the framework "cage"

The trailer was orginally built to carry a boat on top. I changed it to a flat deck to carry extra toys, chairs etc. It's been modified a bunch. Changed the deck shortened the tongue it had a real long tounge for the boat to stick over the front. Trailer has a 9000lb GVW. The builder advertised it could carry a surburdan and a 3200lb boat. I bought it used. The deck raises and lowers like a 4 post lift, pins in place when lifted.

One short note on the looks, I have front flares to put on just haven't don't because of the room in the shop I was walking by them a 100 times a day no sense beating them up.

Well got the exhaust installed, took a chance and decided to drive it home, didn't make it apparently one of the freeze plugs I installed blew out. So the motor comes out again. THIS TIME it goes to the shop for a full rebuild. NOT talking a chance again.

Bummer, I was so excited about seeing it move only to find out about the motor. Sorry man.

After spending some time doing some up grades to the house (not done with those either) I got back in the shop to figure out how much of the CJ 6 I am going take a part to get the motor. After looking for a while I decided to start taking stuff of the motor first and see if it looks like I can get it out without taking the front of. First day pictures coming.
